Designed in 1855, Tripolina has become an international pop icon of Italian elegance and artisanal mastery. Today, Telami writes a new chapter in this history by connecting the heritage of a glorious past with the needs and taste of contemporary life. Telami offers a vast family of luxurious armchairs and accessories expressing the Italian way of life: tasteful living, fashion look, artisanal mastery and pop culture.
The structure of every Tripolina is finely varnished with water-based paints and natural wood stains, which guarantee high protection under every weather condition. From sun to rain, from humidity to cold, the Telami Tripolina armchairs will always maintain their look and functionality. In order to provide remarkable strength and coziness to the armchair, all Telami Tripolina covers are double-layered and their borders are double seamed. Moreover, Telami introduces an extra-ordinary innovation to its Tripolina covers: the structural pockets are now reinforced with an exclusive anti-tear cloth, for an improved tear and wear resistance.
The Telami Tripolina armchair is 100% Made in Italy by the finest artisans and craftsmen, and its production is accurately handmade by experienced Italian carpenter. All the Telami products use only premium-quality materials, and all of our fabrics come from the highest quality Italian manufactures. Telami Tripolina armchair is made of accurately selected ash wood, providing great robustness, flexibility and lightness to the whole structure. Every element is a single piece of solid wood, with perfect fibers orientation. No joints, no knots. This is one of the secret ingredients behind the outstanding reliability and functionality of our Tripolina.
The iconic Telami Novecento Dark Wood Tripolina folding chair with bicolor covers in the classic Ecru colour with colored hem, available also in a luxurious Tuscan suede. 1900 was a century characterized by great contrasts, but also by the capability of merging opposites to create something new. Tripolina itself has been the result of this process: an armchair for military troopers which had become an icon of style and fashion. The Novecento Collection takes inspiration from the XX century to create an idea of elegance which is the result of the encounter of different colours and textiles, in disruptive and unexpected ways.
